How do your programs work?
Our programs employ eating whole, fresh foods bought at your local supermarket. We utilize state-of-the-art behavior modification techniques which change the way you think about weight loss and food. We teach you the most effective way to exercise which puts your body into fat burning mode. You’ll receive weekly in office accountability and support coaching from our caring and compassionate staff who will treat you like family. You will also receive nutritional supplementation and in-office therapies. Our program teaches you how to change your lifestyle and eating habits for the rest of your life.
Are my hormones working against me?
Hormones are key players in regulating weight, metabolism, blood sugar, insulin and where you store body fat. Weight gain caused by hormonal imbalances can occur at any age and affects men and women equally. It is also more common than most people realize. The good news is a major part of our initial consultation and evaluation involves determining your hormone imbalance and placing you in the appropriate program. This will naturally switch on your fat burning hormones, allowing you to finally start losing weight.
Do you use pre-packaged food?
No, we find the key to long term, sustained, weight loss for the rest of your life is learning how to plan, buy and prepare whole, fresh food bought at your local grocery store or farmers market. In our program, you will learn which foods to always avoid - and which foods you can eat all you want. You’ll learn it’s rewarding and actually fun to cook for yourself, your family and others while eating healthy.
How can you motivate me to finally lose weight?
Our state-of-the-art behavior modification program and weekly one-on-one personal coaching sessions have helped many thousands of people do what they thought they would never do - lose their weight and keep it off. Each week, you’ll learn new skills and attitudes about the way you think about foods and lose weight. Our goal is to teach you the tools so you’ll never have to join a weight loss program again.
I need to slim down quickly for an event. Can you help?
Yes! For those who need to shape up quickly, we offer a 21 day “rejuvenation program”. It includes a low calorie diet, fat burning exercise, nutritional supplementation, and special “cellulite wrap treatment”.
Do you prescribe appetite-supressing medication or drugs?
No. Smith Weight Loss and Wellness is strictly a non-surgical, drugless approach to a wholesome, natural weight loss that you can enjoy the rest of your life. We believe people are exposed to way too many drugs, toxins and chemicals on a daily basis which can adversely affect your overall health and the effectiveness of your fat-burning hormones. Our goal is a natural, permanent weight loss and then while under the guidance and approval of your medical provider, a reduction of your daily medications.
What if I only need to lose 10-15 pounds?
Our weight loss programs are not only for people who are extremely overweight. We have programs that jump start your metabolism, improve your digestion, fire up your fat burning hormones, clear up your skin and get you feeling healthy again. Our goal is your overall health and well being.
How much does the program cost?
Programs costs vary depending on your weight loss goals. The initial consultation, which includes body composition testing, past medical history, weight loss consultation, and program recommendation costs $125. However, by attending our free weight loss seminar, the consultation is just $25.
